Prevost 100th

Prevost Celebrates 100 Years

To kick off its 100th year, Prevost brought customers together for a special evening on January 15 in Nashville, Tennessee. The evening celebrated Prevost’s history with guests immersed in a multi-media historical journey that culminated with the unveiling of “Clarisse” – a hand-built replica of the first wooden body coach that Eugène Prévost fashioned in 1924.

Clarisse's Journey
Three generations of Eugène’s family – children, grandchildren, grand in-laws and great grandchildren – dedicated thousands of hours to research, model, build and outfit the replica.

A Tribute to Partnership
The event also highlighted several longtime Prevost partners, including Peter J. Pantuso, president and CEO of the American Bus Association; Tim Conner, of Tennessee-based Nitetrain Coach Company; and Joey and Trent Hemphill, founders of Hemphill Brothers Coaches.

The evening honored these individuals for their years of service, expertise and impact in advancing the industry.

“For us, the anniversary is an opportunity to thank our dedicated employees and loyal customers – many of whom have been with us for generations. It’s also a time to recognize the vision, determination, creativity and lasting legacy of our founder Eugène Prévost.”
